Updates on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The City of Coquitlam continues to provide most civic services and take steps to protect the public and help limit the spread of COVID-19. For updates on specific programs and service areas, see the options listed to the left (if viewing on a computer) or listed below (if viewing on a mobile device).

We are closely monitoring the situation in British Columbia and locally. Please watch this page for updates to City services as the pandemic continues, and see the links at the bottom of the page for COVID-19 information from other government and health authorities.

We're all in this together; let's stay apart.

Immunization Clinics

The Fraser Health Authority is currently evaluating several sites throughout the region, including options put forward by the City of Coquitlam. A final decision on vaccination clinic sites will be made in the near future by the Provincial Health Officer and the respective health authorities. Once those decisions are made, further communication on locations, including the impacts on any City of Coquitlam facilities, will be shared on this page and through other communications channels.

Recreation and Service Updates

In compliance with current PHOs, the City has reviewed all adult community centre and recreation programming (ages 19+). Currently, skating and swimming activities as well as low-intensity group exercise and individual sport and physical activity for adults is permitted. Children and youth programs (under 19 years of age) are also permitted. 

Please note that masks are mandatory for all people entering City facilities. Exemptions apply for people with health conditions or physical, cognitive or mental impairments who cannot wear a mask; for people who cannot remove a mask on their own; and for children under the age of 12. 

At this time, most City services continue to be delivered with protocols in place to ensure both public and staff safety. For service details, click on the link of the area of service. Staff are also available by phone or email; visit coquitlam.ca/contact. Also, many City services and transactions can be completed online; visit coquitlam.ca/eservices.
